Get rid of them shocks, cheap stock replacements will help a lot. Leaf springs when doing their job slid against each other, removing friction there can make a big difference in ride compliance....

205 is a great T-case, bullit proof and easy to put behind a NV4500. On that 4500, do something real with the 5th gear issue and use the right oil.:drivin:

My take is run it if you can get it adapted reasonably enough. You have a spare once you know its limits, I run one behind a very healthy 1969 GTO 400 engine for near 20 years, T-case was never an...

You are correct about taking some of the zinc out of Diesel engine oil, it still has a lot more than modern gas engine oil.. The new specialty oils available now to address this problem only proves...
